Imagining the Indian: The Fight Against Native American Mascoting
Preceded by The Original Shareholder Experience. “Imagining the Indian: The Fight Against Native American Mascoting” is a comprehensive examination of the movement to eradicate the words, images, and gestures that many Native Americans and their allies find demeaning and offensive. The film takes a deep-dive into the issues through archival footage and interviews with those involved in the fight. The psychological research is clear, the use of Native American mascots is detrimental, not only to Native people, but to marginalized groups everywhere.
